How I install Windows 7 drivers on Window 8 computers
The recent demise of the Windows XP operating system has
led a good many of my customers to migrate to windows
computers in their offices. I thought I would explain a tip I
found on the internet that has helped me when I am installing
Xerox drivers that were originally intended for Windows 7 on
to Windows 8 computers.
Below I have pasted the few lines of instructions a friend passed along to me. The
instructions show how to set up Windows 8 for unsigned Windows 7 64 bit Drivers:
__________________________________________________________________
Install unsigned drivers in windows 8 this way
I had a problems installing unsigned drivers in Windows 8 and the steps below worked for me.
Windows Key + R
Enter shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00
Click the "OK" buon
System will restart to a "Choose an opon" screen
Select "Troubleshoot" from "Choose an opon" screen
Select "Advanced options" from "Troubleshoot" screen
Select "Windows Startup Sengs" from "Advanced opons" screen
Click "Restart" buon
System will restart to "Advanced Boot Opons" screen
Select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"
Once the system starts, install the drivers as you would on Windows 7
_________________________________________________________________________
The only problem I have with these instructions is that most people including myself have a
problem with the 2nd line. You don't need to type in Enter in front of Shutdown. In fact I
have never been able to type the instructions in the 2nd line without some syntax
error occurring so I usually just cut and past everything after Enter. The rest of the instructions
are pretty clear so I don't think I need to explain them.
As far as Xerox wide formats go I have been able to run everything from a 12 year old 8825
with the original controller to the latest 6204 in Windows 8 with no problems.
Also I recommend for my customers who don't like being without the start screen in Windows 8
that they go to stardock.com where they can purchase the windows 7 start screen app for
windows 8.
The Stardock screen costs about 5 dollars but it has saved me much more than that in time
saved teaching and re teaching customers and new Windows 8 users how to find the printers in
Windows 8.
I believe the Window 8.1 OS will have a start button and desktop screen as an option but I
have not seen it for my self.

Windows 8 is a good OS and Older Xerox wide formats can be made compatible with it. I tell my
customers not to push their old Xerox 8830, 510 or 6204 out the door and into the scrap bin till
they have tried this. Many of the new KIP, OCE , and Ricoh owners who I tell about this tip
literally cry out in agony when they discover they could have continued with the rock solid Xerox
equipment that has been in their offices for as much as a decade.
Hope someone finds this information useful.

How I Re-install Xerox Freeflow Acxess client tools on a
Windows 7 64bit computer
Assuming the computer on which I or my customer needs to install Acxess client tools has the
Window 7 64 bit OS installed, I usually go to the page below and look for the FREEFLOW
ACXESS CLIENT TOOLS AND ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT TOOL FOR WINDOW,
VERSION 14.01.12.
http://www.support.xerox.com/support/xerox-6204/downloads/enus.html?
operatingSystem=win7x64
NOTE: This version of Acxess client tools runs
on a desk top or laptop computer. If I see a
black computer next to my customers Xerox
wide format system that resembles the Dell
Optiplex controller noted in the photo that can
be seen on this page then I know this version
of Acxess client tools will probably work on my
customers computer. I never attempt to load
the Acxess Client tools onto the Dell Optiplex
controllers. The Dell Optiplex controllers run
the proprietary software that Xerox printers
and scanner use to operate. Acxess Client tools
is only meant to be installed on the customers
desktop PC or Laptop where they intend to
retrieve the scanned files!!!
Here is the process I use to install Acxess client
tools on to a Windows 7 64 bit desktop or laptop
personal computer:
I Download Acxess client tools from the website
above and it will automatically install itself when I open it. During the install I am carefull not
to select the password protected account as this will install accounting software. I then need
to go to the DEVICE MANAGER tab on the upper right. There is an icon on the left side of the
DEVICE MANAGER page that when you cursor over it will read "create a new device". Once
I click on create a new device I can see the device name and IP address boxes open on the
bottom of the DEVICE MANAGER page. I then enter the name and IP address of the Xerox
6204 or the type of system I will be using.. I then hit enter. I will then see the new device in
the list on the screen. I then check on the boxes marked default printer and default scanner
Next I need to go to the DOCUMENT RETRIEVE tab at the top of the page. On the
DOCUMENT RETRIEVE page the Mailbox name will most likely be defaulted to" images"
(lower case) but it can be any of the mail box names that I or my customer has entered at the
Xerox scan page on the copier or scanner system. The file prefix can be anything I or my
customer choose or I can leave it defaulted to MYSCAN. The retrieval directory will be the
location I or my customer want the files to wind up in when they are retrieved from the copier.
I usually close and reopen the AXCESS CLIENT TOOLS once. When I close it on some
systems a question will come up and read " save changes?" I do not want to save changes.
When I reopen it windows may give me an error telling me that the program wasn't installed
correctly. Just choose to re-install the program with the recommended setting and it will
quickly correct the install and reopen.

This should do it if the controller is an Acxess unit.
If there is no controller to be seen or it is mounted on the back of your printer you will need to
look at either How I install Xerox scan assistant or the page for How I install Acxess client
tools on machines that have Non Dell controllers installed. I will be putting these pages up for
you shortly.

How I print a configuration page for a KIP 7100
Sometimes I or my customer may want to print out the KIP 7100 configuration print. The
configuration print will provide the user with a hard copy containing a wealth of information
about the machine which you can store away in case of a hardware failure. In this blog I will
demonstrate how I print the configuration page for the KIP 7100. The operation is similar for
all KIP products which have a touch screen like the one shown in this blog. Proceed to step
1....
Step 1
The touch display should be displaying the KIP home screen as noted below. If the screen is
black I tap anywhere and the display should power up and return to the home screen. If I find
the KIP is not on the home screen but instead on some other screen I simply tap the little
house icon at the lower right of the display and return to home. Once powered up and at the
home screen the display should show the printer online button with a green circle just under
the big help question mark. From here I proceed to step 2.
Step 2
In this step I tap the ? HELP button under the KIP logo one time then I can then proceed to
step 3.
converted by Web2PDFConvert.com
Step 3
In this step I am able to see the screen has changed to the information screen. In order to see
all of the information about the KIP 7100 I will need to tap the SHOW VERSION button at
the bottom of the screen one time. Now I can proceed to step 4.
Step 4
Now I am able to see all of the important information regarding the configuration of the KIP
7100. If I only wanted to see the information and did not need a hard copy I could stop here.
For this example though I do need to print a hard copy so I tap on the PRINT THIS SCREEN
button one time. You should hear the configuration sheet being printed now. After a few
minutes the screen will return to the home screen. The screen will automatically go back to
the home screen so I now proceed to my last step.

Labels: KIP 7100 configuration print
Step 6
I remove the configuration print from the KIP 7100 print stacker and I should have a
configuration print that looks similar to the one below. We will cover what all the information
on the configuration print means in a future blog.
As noted in previous blogs we have only scratched the surface today regarding what you as the
operator can do with your KIP 7100. In a future blog we will also cover how to do this same
operation on the HP wide format plotters. Leave a comment if you like. If you have a
problem with this operation and would like some help you can say that in the comments or
you can email me from my profile. Thanks for coming by.

How I print a configuration page for the Xerox 510 and
8830 wide format printer systems
On occasion I or one of my customers who own a Xerox 510 and 8830/25 wide format copier
and printer may want to print out the configuration print. The configuration print will provide
a wealth of information about the machine that is just not easily visible on the display. I have
provided photos below that demonstrate how I print the config page using the display and key
pad on the Xerox 510 and 8830 systems. The procedure for the 8830 is the same only the
buttons on the 8830 have symbols rather than names. I always remember that if I get lost
during the procedure I can return to the beginning by pressing the online button which will
bring the machine back to the online ready state when the ONLINE LED is lit. If am not sure
where I am in the menu I push the online button and start over. As I never want to
accidentally change settings on mine or my customers Xerox 510 or 8830 I try to remember
that if I become confused during the process I simply push the ONLINE button on the display
and return to the beginning at Step 1 which is were we will start.
Step 1
I always try to make sure my 510 or 8830 looks like the photo below when I start this
procedure. The green online LED next to the ON LINE button should be lit and the 510 should
show XEROX 510 WIDE FMT...IDLE in the display window. Now I can go to the next step.
converted by Web2PDFConvert.com
Step 2
I Press the ONLINE button at which time I should see the green LED go out. No I can go to
the next step.
Step 3
My display should now read XEROX 510 WIDE FMT....PAUSED. Now I push the ENTER
button once and I can go to the next step.
converted by Web2PDFConvert.com
Step 4
My display should now read XEROX 510 WIDE FMT SETUP MENU....(UTILITIES). Now I
press the ENTER button once and go to the next step.
Step 5
My display should now read UTILITIES... (TEST PRINT). I press the enter button once and
go to the next step.
converted by Web2PDFConvert.com
Step 6
My display should now read TEST PRINT...(ALL). I Press the NEXT button once and go to
the next step.
Step 7
My display should now read TEST PRINT....(PRINTER CONFIGURATION) I press the enter
button once and go to the next step.
Step 7
My display should now read UTILITIES.....(TEST PRINT). I Press the ONLINE button once.
At this point I should see the green LED light up and I should hear the printer begin to print
the configuration print.
converted by Web2PDFConvert.com
Step 8
My display should now indicate that it is printing an INTERNAL HPGL while it is printing the
configuration page.
Step 9
Once the configuration print has completed printing my display should return to XEROX 510
WIDE FMT....IDLE with the ONLINE LED lit. The printer has now returned to it's normal
ready state.

How to print a configuration print on the 6204
On occasion an owner or operator of a Xerox 6204 wide format copier and scanner may want
to print out the configuration print. The configuration print will provide a wealth of
information about the machine that is just not easily visible on the display. Before you start
the steps below you need to determine if your 6204 a basic print server( BPS) or an Acxess
print server (APS). To find out which type 6204 your have look on the right end of the the
printer, if there is a small black Dell computer connected you have an APS 6204. If you see
no external Dell computer connected to you operational 6204 you have a BPS machine. Sorry
but BPS models cannot print a configuration print because they were designed to use the older
Fuji embedded controller. If you have an APS 6204 move on to step one.
Step 1. When your 6204 says "Ready" on the display find the Machine status button on the
key pad and press it.
converted by Web2PDFConvert.com
Step 2 You should see the Machine status window now. Find the configuration print icon
and tap it once.
Step 3 You should now see the Configuration prints window now. Find the Printer
configuration icon and tap it once.
Step 4 You should now see the Printer configuration icon highlighted. Find the Print icon at
the top right of the display and tap it once.

Who is this guy anyway?
Today on my first blog about wide format printing I thought I would explain why I decided to
start such an undertaking as this as well as what qualifies me to do it. I am a Xerox wide
format technician for a small reprographics company in Mobile, Alabama. Everyday I deal
with the service issues of my customers and I have accumulated a fairly large amount of
information regarding solutions to everyday problems that customers have with their printers.
Many of the issues my customers have are the same as a customer in another city may have.
I believe that if I cover some of these issues in this blog someone may see an answer to a
problem that has plagued them since the day they started using their equipment. I hear the

Labels: Xerox wide format service issues and solutions
phrase " I never knew my printer would even do that" all the time. I run into situations
where some of my customers have been doing a job the hard way for years just because they
never had the easy way explained to them when the equipment was installed. I also deal on a
fairly regular basis with the driver issues that make IT personnel and end users crazy. Wide
format equipment can run you in circles if you let it so let's try to prevent that. I solve a large
number of the issues my customers have with nothing more than a phone call so if you have a
problem leave a comment or email me in my profile and I will try to help as best I can.
Thanks for reading and leave a comment if you like.
